The Game

Hot and Cold – Round 18

Another huge week dreamteam wise this week I scored 2317 with a massive thanks to captain Gaz and his 152. This weekends footy failed to deliver much as there was many blowouts and the one game that did deliver was the Tigers and the Blues and it has to be said the Tigers choked again and their finals chances are now gone.
